Sergeant 748247. Pilot. 1 Sqdn., Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve. Died Tuesday 22 April 1941. Age 21. Son of Herbert and Muriel Town Stocken, of Harpenden; husband of Ethel Rose Stocken, of Harpenden. Buried: HARPENDEN (WESTFIELD) CEMETERY, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom. Ref. Sec. 2. Grave R 18.
STOLBER William

Commissioner. Control Commission (B.E.). Died Monday 8 September 1947. Buried: HANOVER WAR CEMETERY, Hanover, Niedersachsen, Germany. Ref. 17. A. 15.

William Stolber lived at 105 Wellington Street Luton Beds and had four daughters. Jim, Bill, Glen and Nora. The original family name was Von Stolberg and the family from which he descended was allegedly related to either the Hapsburgs or the Hohenzollern families. The Von Stolbergs were driven out of Germany in the 19th centaury - probably because they had Jewish blood in them - and settled in England.

Family legend claims that one of them became a Don in an Oxford University but he was removed from his post due to alcoholism, and the family fell upon very hard times, settling in Lambeth. William joined the army in the First World War (the family having changed their name from Von Stolberg to Stolber because of the anti-German feelings at the turn of the century). William served, it is believed, in Gallipoli during that conflict.

Between the wars he was in the territorial army. When the Second World War started, he went to France as an RSM with his Regiment, and took part in the retreat to Dunkirk. He was the only senior NCO to survive - the officers being either dead or scattered due to the retreat - and he managed to get all but a handful of his men on a ship leaving the beaches. As he and his men watched the vessel leave, it was sunk by a direct hit from a Stuka dive bomber and all on board were killed. William could speak French like a Frenchman and German like a German, and he led his men back across France, through Spain to Gibraltar and finally home to England.

He was later commissioned into the Royal Engineers and was, according to family legend again, sent north to help run a POW camp of Germans. Prior to this he was a bomb disposal expert and defused numerous bombs across Britain.

The Control Commission, which he joined after the war, was believed to have been involved in Intelligence work, probably liasing with MI6/Military Intelligence.

Having survied the numerous perils of both world wars, it is tragic that he died in a simple road accident, being flung from the back of a lorry wehn it skidded on ice, to break his neck.
